Hi Ruud, Thank you for your SWL report of the QSO held between VK3DRQ in Adelaide, Australia and myself ZL1RA in New Zealand during a VKCW Net. I was running 130 watts on 20 metre efhw vertical at 10 metres and to be heard from Holland was fantastic confirmation of the capability of my latest Homebrew antenna! Thanks for contacting me – 73 de Mike ZL1RA
Dear Ruud, many thanks for your report of my QSO with IK3XJP on 144 MHz via Meteorscatter, received with a quite small yagi antenna. Enjoy monitoring on VHF in weak signal modes! 73, Stefan

Thank you for the SWL report for my 10m beacon at 28.221.80. Beacon is a home built QRP Labs transmitter at 3.75 watts into a home built 10m amplifier which puts out about 16 watts. Transmitter is GPS conditioned every one minute for accuracy and then the transmissions begin again at the start of the next minute. Thank you for picking me up. Curt WU3U/B

Hello Ruud, Many thanks for the valued recording of a SOTA qso and signal report on 30m cw. I have fond memories of my SOTA adventures in NL. 73 Nick G4OOE
Hi Ruud and many thanks for your SWL report and the recording of my signal especially as I am still learning to use the paddle. Great to know I was radiating with only 3 Watts (QCX). The report is much appreciated. Good listening and Best 73s Robin / G4DNP
Thank you for your extensive SWL report, Ruud! I am surprised it's so detailed, and the attached recording of my signal is something wasn't even expecting. I wish you well reception in 2023!
Good evening Ruud! I would like to thank you for the SWL report, it has been years since I received any HI! Kudos also to your cw reception, really not very common nowadays 🙂 I have always ( about 50 years of radio activity ) been an avid QRP operator, although I do not disdain to use higher powers especially during contests, active as II3W or IQ3KU from our radioclub. My working conditions during QSO are 5W with a 20-meter long EFHW wire antenna. In fact, the station is placed JN65DR about 40 km away from my home: it is a remote station made by me ( rtx qrp USDX on a design by Guido PE1NNZ / Odroid XU4 SBC and homemade control / audio software). I will certainly send you my QSL to your address…I prefer paper ones to electronic ones too!!! Have fun and thanks again for the report, much appreciated 🙂
Thanks for SWL report and congrats for your rx station and nice website, best 73.
Hi Ruud, thank you for the SWL report on my IT9ATQ beacon on 21.150 KHz CW. Really nice audio recording of the signal. How nice is our hobby !!! Giuseppe
Witaj Ruud Dziękuje za e-mail i nagranie mojego sygnału cw Kartę qsl wyślę Serdecznie pozdrawiam Mietek SP3BLK
Hello Ruud! I was impressed when you sent me your SWL report! Not only because you was able properly decode CW QSO but also looking at your achievements on you webpage. Exactly as you said, "SWL is not a synonym for second-class HAM". I understood that also after looking at https://swling.com/. That stereotype is probably because I never went too far as an SWL. Well, my grand-parent was a kind advanced SWL – Living in communist regime in Poland the only source of credible information was KF radio. And he was listening a lot, knowing when the best propagation will be, on this old tube based radio. I can see you managed to overcome the antenna problem with nice magnetic loops. Nice!
Hello Ruud, it's very interesting to receive your SWL Report for the CW contact I had with Marek – SP9MQG, all the way from your fine Short Wave Monitoring Station in Holland. It's a small world, especially to think that I must have passed within a very few km's of your home, whilst travelling through Utrecht by train when visiting DAF's Truck Factory for my job. Best wishes to you and all listeners Ruud. Happy Listening. Cheers, Mitch – G4WPS… PS Don't tell anyone I said so, but SWL's make the best Amateur Radio Operators….
